Marine Weather and Tides
Ridge Manor, FL

Version 3.4
What's New / NOTES
5/20/2018 -- NOAA is having problems with the data feed that I use to draw the graphs. They are aware of the issue and working to resolve it. Sometimes changing the location by about a mile will give a correct graph. 3/3/2018 - There is a new GOES Satellite for the east coast that required rewriting that part of the code. Please report any issues.

Discussion
Morning sounding shows pws down to 1.5 inches this morning,
with most of that drier air in place above 500mb. Have
gotten a break in the clouds though with it, and will
therefore expect temperatures to be a couple of degrees
warmer this afternoon, with a little later start to the
shower and thunderstorm activity this afternoon. Continuing
to monitor the trough just south of the yucatan channel for
possible development, but still looking at the heavy
rainfall and possible flooding impacts from it regardless of
development or track. Current forecast is on track for today
and have no update planned.

Aviation
Light SE winds will turn onshore near the coast, and become
more easterly inland as speeds increase to around 8kts.

Showers and thunderstorms will be possible later this
afternoon generally 20-02z.VFR conditions will generally
prevail, though some MVFR conditions could occur in
thunderstorms.

Marine
Generally E SE flow in place over the waters with winds
remaining below any cautionary levels through the week.

There may be an increase in winds for the weekend as a
result of the potential tropical system, but will continue
to monitor it for both the possible development and the
movement. Showers and thunderstorms will be possible each
day. Current forecast is on track with all of this and have
no major changes for the update planned.

It is not checked for accuracy either by anyone at L-36.com or by the source which is typically the US Government. See the NOAA web site for their disclaimer. Finally, tide and current data on this site is from 2007 and 2008 data bases, which may contain even older data. Changes in harbors due to building or dredging change tides and currents and for that reason many of the locations presented are no longer supported by newer data bases. For example, there is very little tidal current data in newer data bases so current data is likely wrong to some extent. This data is NOT FOR NAVIGATION. See the XTide disclaimer for details. In addition, tide and current are influenced by storms, river flow, and other factors beyond the ability of any predictive program.
